Finding an all black outfit for an October 8th event has not been as easy as I thought it would be. Everything I like is too pricey and/or wouldn’t fit my body type.
I have to tell you that I am really loving some of the LBD’s that showed up for the SS12 collections during New York Fashion Week that ended yesterday. I am seeing a lot of lace, chiffon and leather and it had me thinking maybe, I should go for a vintage lace or vintage chiffon dress. I think I can incorporate leather (e.g. vest, boots, accessories) so that it’s season appropriate (is that a word?) without looking too goth or costumey. Of course, I will let you all know what I decide on, but I think I am going to use the designs from Frank Tell’s collection for my inspiration.
In the meantime, happy swooning (I use that word when I post things that I would have to save up 2-months worth of pay to buy) over these wonderfully impressive and in my opinion, timeless pieces from the New York Fashion Week.
